What I love about Ito's stories is that there isn't always a happy ending. Sometimes bad things just keep happening, and the villains win.

And Ito is ridiculously creative and original; I had no idea what "Smashed," the title story, would be, but it was unexpected and great. "Ghosts of Prime Time," "Death Row Doorbell," and "Earthbound" are also inventive and wonderful.

Stories under the tag.
"Bloodsucking Darkness" - 3/5 A young woman develops an eating disorder after a breakup, and a student from her school decides to use his pet vampire bats to feed her while she sleeps. As weird as it sounds.
"Ghosts of Prime Time" - 4/5 I actually really liked this one! A very strange comedy duo uses their spirits to ensure that they always kill. Great twist that they're tickling everyone, and wonderful ending: they achieve world domination.
"Roar" - 3/5 Two hikers find a ghost flood, where the disastrous dam burst is recreated every day, and the man who is obsessed with it. Interesting idea but kind of flat.
"Earthbound" - 5/5 On day in Japan, people start to become cemented to a particular spot in strange poses. It's gradually revealed that they're drawn to spots of guilt and shame. Wonderful and creative idea, but I wish the poses had been explained a little more. I thought, at first, that they had something to do with the crime committed, but then couldn't find a pattern.
"Death Row Doorbell" - 3/5 The remaining family members of a gang killing are haunted by the ringleader, begging for their forgiveness. It takes a well-deserved, gruesome turn (but who wouldn't want to kill the man who killed your family?), and then ends flatly. What happened to her brother? Why does the ghosts stop appearing so suddenly? I wish there had been a little bit more internal reflection.
"The Mystery of the Haunted House" - 2/5 Another interesting idea (a man curses his family and uses them to run a traveling haunted house because he's fleeing his son's monster mother), but too much was going on and it didn't draw me in.
"The Mystery of the Haunted House: Soichi's Version" - 2/5 I liked this one even less. I thought it would be a straight retelling of the previous story but from the villain's point of view, but it was more of a prequel/sequel.
"Soichi's Beloved Pet" - 3/5 An entertaining story about Soichi's corrupting influence on a very sweet cat.
"In Mirror Valley" - 2/5 Two rival villages, having split off because of their intense hatred for each other, place mirrors around the town to reflect their evil gazes. A kind of allegory for divide and hatred, but one that has a few too many plot holes.
"I Don't Want to Be a Ghost" - 2/5 The least memorable of the lot. A man begins an affair with a young woman, who's only attraction to him is the plethora of ghosts that hang around him for her to feast on.
"Library Vision" - 2/5 A man becomes obsessed with the idea that his library is going to "walk away" and is consumed by this threat, just like his father before him. I wish a little more had been explained (is it a curse brought on by the library? Were they really walking away? Is it related to his father's breakdown?
"Splendid Shadow Song" - 3/5 Another wonderfully original idea: an ex-boyfriend's song gets permanently stuck in a young woman's head. She rises to fame singing it, even as she pleads to be released from it. And while she dies at the end, there's more subjects to study.
"Smashed" - 5/5 Honestly my favorite. An isolated tribe gives the main character some delicious, addictive nectar, but if they're noticed while they're eating it, they get smashed. It makes no sense but it's great.

3 stars average. ( )

I'm very surprised by this collection. I wasn't completely horrified by it, which to me is a Big Surprise. The content was fine, but definitely not as intense as the stories in the Shiver collection. It was a nice change of pace for once. I'll review each story again.

Bloodsucking Darkness - Eh. Vampire bats feeding on a kid, and the kid becomes connected with said bats and etc. I blazed through this one because of the holes on the face from the bats, not nearly as bad as Shiver, but still not my cup of tea. This one was just okay for me. Not one of the more innovative and spooky ones just very lowkey.

Ghosts of Prime Time - I kinda dug this one. It was weird. A comedy duo become famous instantly famous due to their weird ability to send their spirits through electronic channels and cause everyone to have unstoppable laughter except for one special boy who can see spirits and knows what's up. The art was pretty cool and probably was why I ended up enjoying this one.

Roar - Floods in a small village that are actually an illusion and have been on constant repeat for thirty years haunt a local man who lost his wife in that flood and has to constantly relive the moment. It's a more subtle story for sure, but it had a solid story. I liked this one.

Earthbound - People are freezing the place and becoming statues. People try to move them and they just end up back in the original place in the exact same position. Turns out they are suffering from Guilt from committing a crime and for punishment are to remain as statues for the rest of their days until they shatter into pieces. Spooky.

Death Row Doorbell - A family was attacked and only two members survived the attack - sadly they are haunted by the spectre of the man who killed their family. The weird thing is that the man is in prison on death row and not dead...and he liked to ring their doorbell every night and beg for forgiveness and torment to the two kids. I wouldn't say this one was scary just very uncomfortable and unsettling.

The Mystery of the Haunted House - A pop up Haunted House run run by a dude who is very disturbed and liked to have nails in his mouth? Yeah, no. I'll pass. Oh yeah, he also procreated with the Monster Model lady from the Shiver collection so....yeah, he's also got a man eating monster kid too. That's a fun combination. I liked this one, but only for the return of the Monster Lady.

The Mystery of the Haunted House: Soichi's Version - The Monster Lady eats the disturbed dude in the end and that's all that matters. Everything else was very EHHHH.

Soichi's Beloved Pet - I'm just glad the Collin the Cat is okay and the baby!disturbed man got all burnt up and hurt. It's what he deserves. This story needed more Monster Lady.

In Mirror Valley - Honestly, I didn't really love this one so I have no thoughts on it. Two feuding villages and two kinds from each village in love blah blah blah. it's romeo and juliet, but a little twisted because it's junji ito and it wouldn't be any other way.

I Don't Want to be a Ghost - A dude finds a girl on the roadside covered in blood and rushes her to the hospital - turns out the blood? it's not hers. WELL. this isn't going to be good. Turns out this girl can see ghosts as her mother died giving birth to her but came back as a ghost to breast feed her and somehow passed on some spooky ghost powers? i don't know either. Basically this girl needs to eat ghosts to stay alive and that explains all the 'not her blood' on her. It was an interesting story, but ultimately it fell flat for me plot wise. The art was beautifully creepy however.

Library Vision - Oh, I LOVED this one. This dude Goro inherited the world's largest library that was given to him by his father. He knows the collection like the back of his hand and freaks out if one single book is out of place. He starts becoming paranoid about missing books and it turns out that the missing books have come to life and begin the haunt him - by the reciting the entire story to him in real time. Turns out that owning a lot of horror books is not a good idea when this happens. Goro decides that he has to memorize every single book - all 150,00 books in order to defeat these book monsters because if he can recite the books then they have no reason to haunt him. Sure...that makes sense! Turns out that trying to memorize that many books turns you insane and you end up dying, go figure! I loved the art of this one, and originality of the idea. Definitely my favourite of the collection

Splendid Shadow Song - Ever have a song that you can get out of your head? Well, in this story that literally happens. A poor girl suffers from a never ending song in her head after her ex-boyfriend decides to take their breakup badly and does some spooky magic and BOOM, she's got a permanent song of repear in her head driving her slowly insane. The bad thing is that she decides to spread the song around in hopes of it leaving her head, but she ends up putting in countless others heads and thus causing a whole disaster. Very weird story, but I dug it.

Smashed - I gotta be honest I didn't particularly like this one at all. I had high hopes since it's the title of the collection and well, that's gotta mean it's good right? Well. This one fell very flat for me in almost every aspect. To sum it up, there's a super special nectar that is like the greatest thing you'll ever taste in your life but there's one caveat...you can't let anything see you eating it. Weird, right? Well, if you are spotted eating it you end getting...well, Smashed. Like a bug. Turns out that the tree that the nectar comes from if sentient and can smack you into oblivion if it catches you eating it's nectar anywhere in the world. So yeah, not my favourite.

Overall, a decent collection but I would say Shiver's stories were far more compelling and interesting in terms of originality and content. ( )

Always reliable for a good spook or - at the very least - a unique and weird idea that makes you wonder just where on earth he gets them from. ( )

A fairly tame collection for Junji Ito as far as the art goes, but it still has some pretty twisted stories that help set the mood for Halloween. "Earthbound" was the eeriest for me. Fuchi, the shark-toothed fashion model from Ito's Shiver collection has cameos in a couple of the stories. ( )
